Wal-Mart has donated 5,000 compact fluorescent light bulbs that Denver City Council members are giving away. The only thing is, it's not totally easy to figure out how to get them. And going to each Council member's Web site, as Greenprint Denver advises, doesn't help.
As far as we can tell, the best bet may be to visit Jeanne Robb (district 10), who is handing them out at her office @ 1232 E. Colfax (call to make sure it's open before you go, 303.377.1807)
CFLs retail for more than conventional bulbs but last much longer and use less energy. They do contain mercury, so they require special disposal/recycling
